Amazing how well this game is doing
They're certainly pushing the limits of Java. The game looks better than ever. The more they encourage teamwork and player cooperation, by adding things like this and the God Wars Dungeon, the better IMO.
New skill called Dungeoneering. Hehe.
Man, no doubt. What these guys can make java do in a browser is something else! Although the skill sounds a little silly the dungeon looks great and sounds like a very good idea. Been ages since I last played.
I just wish runescape would remade in a client wihtout clunky looking graphics. I mean if there was a game like runescape that looked like WoW at least and supported wasd I would play it.
If only Jagex would throw themselves into the ring with WoW by allowing WASD, then I'd most likely resub. It's just the damn clicky system that I can't stand, I'm too used to Warcraft.
They can't re-do the client because there is no client. They're working within a dated coding+visual system that requires no client on your part. This is what got them the huge base in the first place and I don't think they're going to change that for anything. They're making as much money as the big guys, I don't think they need to change it. I always loved the skill system in this, too.
Got hit by nostalgia so hard, I'm glad this game is doing as well as it is.
ThIs is web-base game right?
Wow this has such a cool retro-vibe, reminds me of the old first person dungeon crawlers like dungeonkeeper and bards tale. The simple graphics actually work well for it. I'm getting a tad burned out on giant glowy crystals in every mob -- this stuff feels like good old D&D to me.
I am amazed at how far this game has come since I last looked at it. (Mind you that was years ago) Kudos to Jagex and the Runescape crew. They've made a realitively low budget browser based game into an epic.
I was in to this game like ALOT back in the day.. And well, best ever game I have played (Counting out WoW). If there was a game like Runescape with updated graphics and some cool animations and WASD movement, Keybindings etc, I would be so there.
This game died the day they updated the graphics. They were bad before but they were good enough for what the game was. Looks to me like they have just sat down and tried to make the game into every other MMO out there but in Java. the update in grpahics made this game far too clunky to enjoy. Cant really comment now as i havnt played this game since i tried it when the graphics had just been changed and found it awefull
This game proves that accessibility is king in MMOs. A lesson even some brand new AAAs have forgotten. Easy accessibility = huge audience.
Omg, lol...I just saw this company is making transformers and I was pumped...heard they made runescape so came to look at it...is this a joke? Do people really play this? Very sad theya re making Transformers
